This looks like a very interesting project.  Make sure to check out the short review at freewaregenius, which is helpful as always, and where i saw this mentioned first.

Want an efficient way to do on-screen reading of web-pages, email, and other electronic texts? Try WordFlashReader -- its a Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) program that makes on-screen reading easy. Its free, open-source, and works on both Windows and Linux. Try it out!

This program works best with text files and html files, but can open pdf files as well. WordFlashReader works by flashing each word of the text or book sequentially on the screen (pausing for punctuation). Not only is this way of reading off of a computer screen less straining on the eyes than the normal method, but also after a little practice you may discover that you can read at multiple times the speed you normally do.

Looks interesting. End up reading large chunks of text every now and again on the computer and could be interesting to try out.

Ah! I forgot about that program. I do most of my reading online and use Zap Reader. WordFlashReader is great for speed reading articles I have downloaded for offline reading.
